Cara Delevingne has hit back at Vogue journalist Plum Sykes after she claimed that the model slept through two interviews with her for the magazine. Whilst anyone who has read anything about Cara Delevingne will know that she just loves to sleep, Cara is not happy about this information in the interview, despite even admitting “I fall asleep everywhere! Someone recently asked if they could publish a book of pictures of me sleeping, because there are so many.”
The piece entitled "Everyone’s favourite rebel model" does detail Delevingne’s hectic lifestyle in which she is seen pretty much everywhere at everything, giving rise to why the 21-year-old would be so tired. When trying to talk to Cara, Plum says she had few results as she fell asleep twice during the scheduled interviews.
Apologetic after turning up late to the interview, Cara says, "I always wake up ten minutes before I have to be anywhere," before she mentions that the two of them should have a massage so they can be relaxed for the interview, within which she promptly falls asleep again.
Sykes contacted photographer Tim Walker for the piece, who has worked with Cara many times, who confirms that she is a serial sleeper: “Every shoot I’ve done with her, she’s fallen asleep,” he tells her. “She slept for seven hours on one Mulberry shoot.”
However, it is when she leaves the interview that she discovers that Delevingne has, in fact, been out until 5 a.m. the night before, her notoriously photographed presence giving her away on Instragam and in the tabloids. When she questioned the model as to whether this is the reason she is so tired at work, Cara cleverly notes that "compared to anyone else my age that I know, I really go out so little."
The whole thing has riled Cara up so much that she has posted numerous responses on both Instagram and Twitter since yesterday.
“Why do people in the industry lie so much???? They would rather see you fail than succeed. What happened to supporting each other?” was her first response, followed by a stream of tweets including, “All I can say is that I work extremely hard and 'sleeping' is proof that sometimes I work too hard. I apologise for being so ambitious [sic]”
